Delays on the Rennell Sound road

  • Jul. 20, 2012 6:00 p.m.

If you are planning to use the Rennell Sound road in the next couple of weeks, you can expect some minor delays and two one-day closures because of road work.Larry Duke of the Ministry of Forests said the project is minor maintenance, repairing three creek crossings, one which has already been completed. The two remaining crossings will be repaired this week and the week of July 30.Mr. Duke said the Ministry is trying to accommodate both the fallers working in the area and the ferry schedule, but due to the many variables, he is not able to say exactly which days the road will be closed.He also said that people planning to use the road in the next few weeks should check with the Visitors’ Information Centres, or call Front Counter Haida Gwaii (the ministry’s public information service), at 559-6200 to make sure the road is open on that day.
